Ever since the last update, my keyboard isn't appearing in Firefox Focus when I tap the url bar. Normally it would appear to type in a new url, but not anymore. When I tap the bar, it automatically selects the complete url but then I have to tap again in order to show the keyboard. See the attached screenshot; I have tapped the url bar here but no keyboard has appeared.

I am using the regular keyboard on Android, Gboard. I'm on Android 13. Using a Fairphone 4.

Everything is updated to the latest available.

Hi, I noticed that I'm getting YouTube suggestions that seem to be based on my Firefox focus browsing. I'm using android. I installed the duck duck go app, it's app tracking protection feature is showing that Firefox focus is sharing cookie data with Google. I'm a bit surprised by this as I thought by default Firefox focus was preventing this kind of thing.

Am I miss understanding? What cookie data does Firefox focus on android share with Google?

Thanks in advance

In Firefox Focus for Android Version 110.1.0 Build#370591223 the option 'Add Shortcut' does not appear in the menu anymore. It was there prior to the update yesterday. I still have several shortcuts listed on the home page when Focus opens which I cannot remove, but that's a different issue.

Has this feature been removed from Firefox Focus for Android?

I downloaded foxfire focus on my pixel phone. When I sign into my e-mail and certain websites the browser is showing not secure. I try to login from that phone but couldn’t because the links didn’t work.

Can’t get pictures it flashes up so quickly can’t catch a picture. What would cause browser not being secure.

One of the main reasons I switched to regular Firefox is because Chrome always let's Amazon's stupid "influencer" vids autoplay silently. Which burns through my phone's data.

The regular Firefox didn't allow them to autoplay.

I was hoping focus would not allow them to play, and stop the other ads from showing up.

But no, focus does a much worse job than regular Firefox. It doesn't stop anything else, and it allows the influencer vids to autoplay.

Amy suggestions for making Amazon stop with the ads and video ads?
